. the legalization if you're an american and overseas and participating -- >> the obama administration has used this legal argument to justify their drone attacks. it's not unfamiliar to them. >> about a year ago or so, the nypd came under fire for some listening in this -- using surveillance techniques on certain groups. >> in new jersey. >> in new jersey. >> right. >> there was a thing going back and forth between new york, new jersey, whether they were allowed to do this or not. with all this going on, aren't we making the case for more of that rather than less of that? >> yeah, we have to do more of it. it's very uncomfortable. it's very -- none of us want to give up any of our privacy, understandable. the reality is this is how you stop them. this is the only way you have to stop them. that is getting the information in advance. they're doing everything they can to hide what they're doing. law enforcement, intelligence agencies, they have to be able to do everything they can to intrude into them to find out what they're doing. >> mayor, as far as i can tell, we knew about nidal malik hasan
. >> i'm not sure i agree with the premise that it's a big defeat for president obama. clearly, it's something he wanted to happen, chris. i think he never had it on his agenda until newtown occurred. once newtown happened, there was a sudden shift in terms of the polls, american public opinion, and people said, we need to do something. we can't have small children slaughtered in an i dyllic community like newtown, connecticut. right now the emphasis is can the senate work with anybody. the silent filibuster -- you had a clear majority of the senators, 55, who supported this legislation, and as congresswoman harman pointed out, this was a compromise legislation. this was no hard line. the question becomes, should they have not ever focused on assault weapons? should they have never focused on high capacity magazines? did that waste time? should the president have acted more quickly in the wake of newtown to get this done? these are all tactical measures. as harry reid, the majority leader in the senate, said this week, if you have 90% of the american people and 80% of republicans s
. >> i definitely agree 100% with what president obama said. you know, it's -- but it really wasn't something about the marathon. it was more of a spirit of the american people and the way we are. and he made that very clear. i think boston, the oldest marathon in the world, we want to keep it going. nothing will ever stop it, i don't think. and we're going to have a great day in boston next year. >> where were you when you heard about it? >> i was actually at home with my girlfriend, karen. we had gone for a run. but my daughter d
in the united states senate. look at the congress agriculture rating, 79 percent of americans say congress does not work. they are not -- they do not have the feeling about president obama. >>chris: so, not a big defeat for president obama? >> of course it is. he went around the country and on wednesday night he had a meltdown in the rose garden because the senators actually voted the way they felt was the right way to vote is there a serious public policy argument for background checks --. >> the farrents of newtown want something done. >> i have the greatest empathy for the parents but they never made a public policy argument for the bill. >> the policy argument is so clear we should not have easy access to guns people who have criminal records or people with any kind record or who are many tale comp at this . should not be allowed to get it. we see in newtown but each day in the streets of washington, dc, chicago, new york, a slaughter because we will not do anything. >> we have the tightest gun control legislation. >> the guns come from places with lax gun control legislation. >>chris: i wi
that it's a big defeat for president obama. he's something he wanted to happen but i think he never had it on the agenda until newtown occurred. once newtown happened there was a shift in the polls, the american public opinion. people said we need to do something that you can have the small children slaughtered in idyllic community like newtown, connecticut. right now, and i think the emphasis is can the senate work with anybody? i mean the silent filibuster -- you had a clear majority of the senators, 55, who supported this legislation. congressman harman pointed out this was no some promize legislation. this was a hard line. so should they have never focused on assault weapon or high capacity magazine? did it waste time? should the president acted more quickly in the aftermath of newtown to get it done? those are tactical measures. but the thing is, as harry reid, the majority leader in the senate said this week, when you have 90% of the american people, and 80% of republicans saying okay, background checks are a good idea. we like that. the senate still can't get it done, the emphasi
? >> yes. a problem for the obama administration but didn't begin just with the obama administration. going back even to the nixon administration we have american administrations that soft petal arab terror, arab islamic terror and cover up for it. you know that the 9/11 bombers one of the reasons they were able the get on board was because there was a rule against profiling. it came up in 9/11 commission. the former secretary of the navy talked about it. the fact they were only allowed to ask two people on each flight if they were arab, two people if they were black, two people if they were white, various categories. that's how they got on the plane. this is a real problem. we shouldn't be worried about giving offense to terrorists, we should take the offense against terrorists. >> tucker: the idea, then, apparently is by giving offense we invite more terror attacks, in other words it's our fault. our bias draws the attack. isn't that the underpinning of the world view? >> this is like the battered women's sib drome. somebody rapes you because you are too attractive? that is not the reason
thoughts on that? >> i don't think that that's going to happen. the obama administration has been clear, they're distancing themselves from that concept. you've got an american citizen. we don't have dzhokhar going abroad in training. his brother apparently did. but dzhokhar didn't. and dzhokhar is going to be tried as an individual on his own right. so i think the chances of this ending up as an enemy combatant are very small. >> but you've heard that because of high security concerns they would like to question him for a period of time, albeit briefly, before mirandizing him and reading him his rights. how long can they do that? how far can they go with those questions? >> well, that's a very good question. because the longer we go, the less likely there is that there's a public security issue here. one thing that the defense will certainly raise is the remarks of the police chief of watertown in which he said these are the only two guys, we're done. now the argument from the government will be well, he wasn't informed. but, you know, that's going to be played out pretty significantly
